Miss A Columnist

Mary Litton has lived in the DC area for over 12 years, and after an exciting career in public and international relations, she exchanged her gowns and glitz for jeans and playground shoes to stay home and raise her two young children. When she isn't practicing the Jedi arts or learning to sing the alphabet song backwards, she can be found at her computer working on her great American novels. While the only champagne in her life these days is the color of her minivan, she enjoys exploring the fun and fabulous side of the city through the eyes of her children. Grateful to a city that offers free museums and fearless in her quest for adventure, she and the kids take advantage of nearly all of the District's wonderful destinations. If you have something for moms, children or families that you would like covered on Miss A, please contact Mary at mary.litton@askmissa.com.
